Chinese waterfall in spectacular rage after rainfall (Aerial footage)

chinese-waterfall-rainfallThe Chinese Hukou Waterfall seen in spectacular rage due to the increase of sediment concentration and water volume in the Yellow River which happens annually in September to November.

The Hukou Waterfall is the largest waterfall on the Yellow River and the second largest waterfall in China

The width of the waterfall changes with the season, usually 30 metres (98 ft) wide but increasing to 50 m (164 ft) during flood season.

It has a height of over 20 m (66 ft). When the Yellow River approaches the Hukou Mountain, blocked by mountains on both sides, its width is abruptly narrowed down to 20 m (66 ft) – 30 m (98 ft).

Below aerial footage shows the mesmerizing force of nature.
